Peptides, elixir of youth
Native of the Peruvian Amazonian forest, the Sacha Inchi is a plant with many properties, discovered and appreciated by the ancient Inca. Modern cosmetic technology has allowed us to isolate the most portentous molecules of its extracts and study their efficacy, making use of their dermatological functions.
Skin elasticity and compactness derive mainly from two structural proteins: collagen and elastin. As age advances, their synthesis decreases, degradation accelerates and their structure becomes more fragile and less compact.
In vitro tests have shown that Sacha Inchi peptides influence the expression of the CTGF gene, which regulates the growth of connective skin tissue, like collagen and elastin, and of the FOV03 gene, which is called the “Human Longevity Master Switch Gene” for its ability to protect cells from aging.* Clinical tests on the active ingredient also show the ability to redefine the facial contour and decrease wrinkle depth, for a lifting effect, smoother skin and a younger look.
Appreciated for centuries by indigenous South American peoples, Açaí berries have many beneficial properties that are currently the object of scientific research.
Açaí has an extraordinary concentration of natural antioxidants that protect your skin and help it prevent and combat aging increased by external phenomena, such as photoaging. The antioxidants, anti-anthocyanins and essential vitamins A, C, E found in this superfood provide real nourishment to your skin, however dry, dehydrated or dull it may be, bringing back its softness, firmness
Superfood: a new trend
Superfoods are foods that have a content of nutrients (such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants or enzymes) higher than the average of common foods, a real concentrate of well-being and health. In recent years, superfoods have been the protagonists of numerous cosmetic research, with the aim of exploiting these "energy bombs" for the treatment of the skin, to revitalize skin and encouraging the regeneration of the aged cells. Sacha Inchi and Açaì certainly represent two superfoods of high interest, from the nutritional and dermatological point of view, whit multiple properties that we “exploit” in Epysens line, dedicated to the most dehydrated and "emptied" skin.
